Hotel is clean and staff was very helpful and polite. Our bed was not comfortable to point neither of us really felt rested. Rooms are clean and there is a small fridge which came in handy. Good place to stay that is close to highway but a good 45-60 minutes to Napa or Sonoma

My first interaction was over the phone. I was peppering them with questions regarding Gift Card use. Linda, who told me she's worked there for 7 years, assured me not to worry. I paid my bill at checkout using the cards without issue. She was all smiles and friendly with each interaction I had with her. Linda should be cloned.... More

This hotel is well located backing on to a Safeway and some cafes and restaurants. The hotel lobby is very modern looking and nice to sit in with plenty of seating for their cafe. The problems I had related to the room itself. The door had large gaps around it so a lot of light from the hallway flooded the... More

After flying cross country and driving from San Francisco I arrived at 11:30 pm local time (2:30 pm my time). When I tried to check in they told me they were sorry but that they had no rooms available. They acknowledged my reservation but said that someone must not have checked out as expected that day and so they were... More

Bed was plush and comfy. Restaurants and stores walking distance. Typical courtyard, which is why I stay in these. Would stay here again. My only negative was the traffic was so bad it was a little too far out of Petaluma and we would stay closer next time. But then the highway construction will be finished by next year.

We decided to try out the Courtyard in Novato for a recent trip out west. We looked for a place to stay near San Francisco that wouldn't break us and this one was perfect. It was a short drive into San Francisco. The hotel itself was right off the 101, but we never heard any free way noise. There was... More

It's location is convenient to 101, had a few restaurants and a grocery store within walking distance, and the hotel itself... More

Layout and amenities are typical Courtyard. Pleasant staff. Tiny pool with fire pit area. Adjacent to shopping area with three restaurants and a Safeway. Near Highway 101, but far enough away to be free of traffic noise. Nice community and neighborhood. King room was nicely furnished, but dated (wall-mounted air conditioning, bath-shower combo with curtain). I'd likely stay here again... More

Stayed here for 5 nights while working at the race track. The room held up well during a 6.0 earthquake. No damage from what I can tell although the guy in the room above me must have fell out of bed. I could hear a big bang and foot steps heading to the door! The bed was nice and it... More
